of the united nations general assembly. he didn't shift policy there. he didn't say he's moving away from decision to confront iran before it gets a nuclear weapon, rather than a nuclear weapons capability which is what netanyahu nt nenyahu wants him to say i am going to stop iran before they approach having a weapon. he didn't do that. >> bill clinton was onmorning joe" today discussing this very issue. let's play a little bit of that. >> it looked to me like just again frombserng t pdeas reluctant to have one meeting in a u.n. schedule where normally he'll have 15, because of the nearness of the campaign. >> this is the whole questionf whether or not president obama shoulde meeng right now with the lears wre gre henhe world stage. he is not having any meetings at all. was this to avoid having to meet with prime minister netanyahu or president morsi of ypt? >> welt -- >> equally difficult in a political year. better too nothing tn thins se i think it had to do a little bit with morsi, didn't want to be seen -- the campaign didn't want him to be seen as meeting with the lus mim brotherhoo
-qaeda, libya, and the statements by the administration, go to what's happening at the united nations. >> uh-huh. lou: the president declines any bilateral meeting with any world leader this week. he gives a speech. will be interesting to hear your take on. he moves off to campaign while morsi and ahmadinejad basically talk about embracing the world and creating a new architecture for world government. what do you make of that? >> that's scary, isn't it. the leader of the free world, who, a year ago, was talking about the world that he envisioned, the great democracy is now at the united nations cringing to talk about the murder of the american diplomats, that it's not our fault, but a reaction to a youtube video. i mean, where was president obama? he didn't sound like a great world leader, but on the other hand, you have the new president of egypt, and what did he talk about? he talked about a new policy towards the middle east. he talked about egypt having a bigger role in the world, and then there was ahmadinejad of iran. that's his swan song. he's not addressing the united nation, and he
nations, president obama spoke before the united nations general assembly. it was his final u.n. address of this term. and the problems in and around the middle east dominated both speeches as the president and governor romney addressed everything from iran's nuclear program to the attack that killed our ambassador in libya. ed henry is our chief white house correspondent and toking president obama. both men really duking it out on foreign policy all of a sudden. >> that's right. one city, two candidates and two different visions. it's clear that mitt romney is charging that the president is sitting on the side line, not active enough in the middle east. the president, as you noted, his suggestion is look, you can't dictate the facts on the ground in the middle east. some of this has to play out. where we see that most acutely is on iran where mitt romney is suggesting we should be more aggressive, maybe use military action. the president today said give sanctions some more time to work. although he added this caveat. >> that's why a coalition of countries is holding their iranian govern
execution- style. at the united nations in new york, iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad aimed new attacks at the u.s. in a speech to the general assembly, he talked of a new world order, without what he called the hegemony of arrogance. he also denounced israeli threats of a military strike against iran's nuclear sites. >> ( translated ): testing new generations of ultra-modern weaponry and the pledge to disclose these armaments in due time is now being used as a new language of threat against nations to coerce them into accepting a new era of hegemony. continued threat by the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. delegation boycotted the speech, citing ahmadinejad's repeated diatribes against israel. later, the new, islamist president of egypt mohammed morsi also took on israel, over the plight of the palestinians. >> ( translated ): it is shameful that the free world would accept that a party in the international community may continue to deny the rights of a nation that looks to inp
, wednesday. the platform will be taken at the united nations general assembly. my question escapes what actions can we be taking similar to canada shedding their embassy, what can the united states do with regard to the international court of justice? there is talk right now about recognizing the fact that he is on a genocidal task. his calls are genocidal. that is against a member nation of the united nations. how can we as america do something to ensure iran is thrown out of the united nations? he cannot be given platforms like this. he is now the secretary for the mam for the next three years. >> how can the united states get iran thrown out? do you realize iran just held a meeting with 40 countries? i thought it was 40. even more important, 120. you are suggesting the president should organize an assembly to throw iran out? listen, you'll forgive me, but it is ridiculous. we pay dues but we do not decide how countries will vote. thank god none of the votes in the assembly are mandatory in terms of being carried out. that has to be done through the security council, where we have a v
outside the united nations. thank you. top israeli official tells israeli newspaper that president obama does not give his country the same sense of security that bill clinton did during peace negotiations in 2000. the unnamed official says, "president clinton made us feel like he had our back at camp david. we felt he'd be there if things went bad. president obama doesn't give us the same sense that he'd be there." interesting added part of this story that article was tweeted out by the official press office. today, the president said through the chief spokesperson what many others in the administration have already acknowledged, that the deadly attack against u.s. mission in benghazi was, in fact, terrorism. thaw want specifics on what was known before the attack and about the perpetrators afterwards. here is catherine herridge. >> in addition to branding the benghazi attack as terrorism at the u.n. today, secretary of state hillary clinton acknowledged suspected involvement of aqim. >> they are working with other extremists to undermined the transition underway in north africa as we s
development, prime minister netanyahu speech at the united nations and that bold red line. fox news contributor, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton. john, let's first turn to this development in tripoli, with strong our personnel. what is that about? >> i think it is a further concession really to reality in libya that it is not secure there and we cannot guarantee the safety of our personnel. if that is the judgment they make and i think the only prudent thing to do is pull them out. lou: do we not look like complete idiots, the united states? it is now two weeks and two days since the murder of our ambassador. we now have figured out there is a security issue? >> apparently we withdraw non-essential personnel before, but the fbi team that is supposed to be investigating has apparently not gonna get either. lou: they are reporting that they have been there for days and they are not moving around for fear of their own safety, yet we have an ambassador with the state department that has been alerted to the security concerns without, without protection. >> this
work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world in terms of explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong. the administration is trying to cover it up saying she was given the best information she had available at the time. they knew there was a lot of information they didn't have. they knew there was a large amount at the very least essentialial evidence showing it was a terrorist attack

this morning a showdown at the united nations as we await two of the most highly anticipated speeches of the entire week at the u.n. general assembly. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. palestinian president mahmoud abbas both scheduled to speak a few hours from now. we await the headline which one already this morning. i'm bill hemmer. martha: i'm martha maccallum. mahmoud abbas is expected to recognize the state of palestine will netanyahu will push action on iran. it was a 24 hours ago president mahmoud ahmadinejad stood in the same spot. he lashed out against israel and the united states. >> translator: the current abysmal situation of the world and history due mainly to the wrong management of the world and the self-proclaimed centers of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil. bill: david lee miller now is live at the u.n. and what can we expect to hear from the israeli prime minister after he left israel late yesterday? david lee, good morning there. >> reporter: good morning, bill. it is expect the by many that israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will es
of the year when nearly every world leader in the same place, a lot of them at least, the united nations general assembly. kings, prime ministers, ministers get a few minutes at the podium to address the rest of the world. they get their undivided attention unless, of course, certain delegations decide to walk out in protest or not even show up. well, that's what happened today at the american mission to the u.n. essentially did not show up as the president of iran walked in. more than just a minute or so. here's a bit of a speech a few minutes ago by president mahmoud ahmadinejad. it was not a redefined message by any stretch of the imagination. he pretty much repeated what he has said along the lines of western world nomination as he rallied against the western world as well as the united states. let's listen in as he talks about the u.n. as well. >> the need to remove the structural values and encourage the process of universal participation in global management has never been greater before. the united nations looks efficiency to bring about the changes. if this inefficiency persists

of time to fix. let's turn to the united nations general assembly where the much anticipated speech byo outgoing president was overshadowed by mohamed morsi. listen to how he introduced himself. >> translator: i am the first egyptian civilian president elected democratically and free, following a great, peaceful revolution halted by the entire world. >> let's go richard roth, covers the u.n. for us. listen to the speech, it sounds like he's stepping it up, ready to be this world leader, world negotiator. is that fair that he's made the move from muslim brotherhood to world leader? >> reporter: well, i think he's still both things. the leader of egypt, decades ago, nasser and others, they had a prominent place when it came to the middle east. there has been this vacuum ever since. president mubarak had never even been here at the u.n. in the last 15 years and played a much quieter role on the global stage in the middle east. this is a big impressive debut on the stage. i think many agree for morsi, flexing his muscles. he was willing to be a global leader. he said to the general assembly
attended a meeting at the united nations and pledged another $45 million to help the opposition in syria. those rebels who are trying to force out their brutal and bloody leader. it's fox top story and jonathan hunt is in it -- on it live at the united nations tonight. do we have any indication of what those rebels, who are opposing rat jesus' name plan to do with that money? >> well, what we are told by 15 million of the 45 million will go towards communication equipment for the rebels. something that the u.s. has previously funded. the other 30 million, according to secretary of state clinton will go toward humanitarian aid. >> as more parts of syria's control slips from the regime, to the opposition, we're supporting civilian opposition groups as they begin providing essential services. reopening schools, rebuilding homes, and the other necessities of life. >> >> of course, what the opposition really wants is action from the united nations security council. but absent still the support of russia and china, that quite simply, shep, is not going to happen. >> shepard: jonathan, what mor
this morning, the eyes of the world will be on president obama as he speaks to the united nations general assembly on its opening day. the president is expected to address the recent violence in the middle east, the u.s. consulate attack in libya and issue a new warning to iran about its nuclear program. >> but president obama is not meeting one-on-one with any of the world leaders. he had 13 bilateral meetings last year. cnn foreign affairs reporter is with us. what can we expect from the president's speech this morning? >> obviously the president is going to touch on some of the big issues out there. he's going to talk about syria and how to contain the crisis there and get president bashar al assad out. he has to address the last couple of weeks, the consulate attack in libya but more importantly, the raging protests that have gone through the middle east, these anti-american protests. secretary clinton was speaking to the clinton global initiative yesterday and previewed what the president was going to say about the need to not have extremist hijack the arab spring. let's take a liste
